Amtrak is having a Northeast Regional sale with rates as low as $19. I really like riding Amtrak, particularly to cities like New York, where public transportation is the norm. Even in cities like Philadelphia and Baltimore there are easy ways to get around and so many interesting things to see.
Some sample sale fares include Baltimore to Philadelphia $25 one-way and that would barely cover gas in some cars. If you are looking for a fun weekend getaway – consider taking Amtrak this summer. You must purchase tickets by 6/22/17 for travel 7/13 – 8/31/17.
